Allies, Achievers and Risk Takers

This course focuses on developing ways to create an empathetic and caring community and to become culturally proficient in a manner that will foster mutual respect and trust among the classroom students and teachers. Topics and activities focus on culture/race, ally/bully behavior, and character building. This course will share how teaching strategies and practices that model building a stronger and more trusting environment of learners will lead to a student’s willingness to take more risks academically across content areas, and foster their ability to see multiple perspectives and look through varied lenses within the community as well as in literature. Literacy units and resources will be shared as ways for students to further explore about these topics through characters and settings of the books
